Good news for me. After debating whether to cancel my pychotherapy or not i did, as i couln't afford to invest in it at the moment the therapist phoned me and wanted to know why i was cancelling, as i didn;t speak to her directly.
She has offered me the service at a reduced rate and has also offered to liase with my gp with regard to my difficulty interpreting things. I have fibromyalgia and don;t know whether it's the cause of my constant state of confusion or if i'm really experiencing some kind of mild leanring dissability. I never did well in school and failed college which is why i got on ok at sports and had a short lived career at that. All the years of trying to hide my lack of understanding and feeling foolish knawed away at my self confidence and that is what has me in the panicked state of anxiety i sometimes fall into. I feel like i'm taking a huge step forward and a weight is slowly lifting. I know it'll take time and work but i'm glad it's starting to happen.
Take care, boo,
PS, i'm definately doing my race tommorow, no matter how foolish i think i look or feel. My husband gave me a great bit of advice this evening, he siad, you're just turning up, doing a thing and going home, who'll notice, only you. I have to keep telling myself that.

Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most! But it has its advantages!
Fibro, spinal arthritis and all that goes with it.
